Cloak and Dagger suffers from what many of the other Marvel shows do: it's too sluggish in its story pace and the plot falls by the wayside.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

It's a proceed with caution type of show. Sure, it might manage to surprise you, but more likely it's yet another "this is fine" Marvel superhero show.

The premiere mistakes the details of its characters' backstory for propulsive storytelling, and in doing so begins long before the story actually starts.
December 26, 2018
Its heroes are suitably worth rooting for, if only they would find some positivity in their abilities, and they're certainly better together than apart (which is surely the point).

[Marvel's Cloak & Dagger] isn't sharp enough to draw blood.

Their journey should be thrilling, fascinating. It's a chore.
February 3, 2019
Well developed lead cast, a detestable villain, and a good finale, it's just a shame about Episode 9... Anyway, more than worth a watch, and a great addition to the MCU.

Cloak & Dagger is letting its protagonists develop a different dynamic, with help from the unique link between their minds.
December 26, 2018
Cloak and Dagger is just getting started.
June 14, 2018
[The] supporting cast also gets an upgrade.... while each of these tweaks is relatively minor on its own, all together they put the series in a much better position to succeed than a direct adaptation would.
June 22, 2018
Cloak & Dagger is intriguing and a perfect start to another Marvel show. The twists and turns will keep fans coming back for more week after week.

I really enjoyed Cloak and Dagger. I'm intrigued by the mystery around Tyrone and Tandy's powers without feeling overwhelmed by "What a twist!" machinations.

There are outlines of a lot of very good ideas but none of them are quite fleshed out - yet. So far, Cloak & Dagger is strictly OK.
June 4, 2018
Cloak & Dagger is a well-crafted, captivating nightmare. A harrowing story aboutthe limits of the human breaking point.
June 29, 2018
Cloak & Dagger had a strong opening, and I can't wait to see where this slow-burn of a series goes.
June 8, 2018
Cloak & Dagger is also something we haven't seen from Marvel in years: a canon without the baggage of legions of fans, expectations, and pre-loaded storylines.

May 30, 2018
The show is about race, class, police violence, corruption, and even faith, with the superhero stuff as window dressing. That's both the strength and weakness of the show.
July 16, 2018
The violence, drug use and occasional language may draw an eyebrow from some parents. But, "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" shows potential to be a strong voice for what concerns the upcoming generation, while still providing entertaining superhero action.
December 26, 2018
I enjoyed Cloak & Dagger a lot more than I expected. I doubt any of you would be disappointed in a well acted drama with superhero undertones. In an age of Infinity Wars and gritty street level heroes, sometimes it is nice to see something unique.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

In a media market filled with caped crusaders, Cloak & Dagger still manages to stand out by breaking the rules for what it means to be a superhero.
